Last month I posted about the June 9th Primary Candidates and the wide open races for certain districts in the State elections this coming November 2015. Plus there were county and city seats as well as Commonwealth Attorney seats on many ballots.
That that previous post had very few views (most readers didn’t even bother reading it) which tells me most readers aren’t following State elections and don’t care who is representing them.
Even if YOU have lost your voting rights you should be informing your spouse, significant other, parents, siblings and friends about the candidates and as a constituent you should be reaching out to those who will represent you in Richmond this coming January. Ignorance is NOT bliss, knowledge is!
Every two years
Delegates (100) run for re-election and every four years Virginia Senators (40) run for re-election. This November 3, 2015 ALL 140 seats are up for election. Virginia
The final list of every candidate running in November will not be available until mid or late August.

Republican June 9th Primary Results:
As of June 10th, 18 seats have no incumbent (3 incumbents lost their spot in the Primary yesterday), but 5 of the 18 seats have Delegates running for a Senate slot.
The next post on the November elections will be after the final list of candidates has been published on the Virginia Board of Elections website in August, stay tuned.
